Le Salon Prive is a French restaurant in St Margarets, a suburb of Richmond next to Twickenham. Its chef has a solid track record of working in some high-end restaurants, and the menu is quite ambitious for a local restaurant: you don’t see hare and truffle pithivier or double baked gruyere souffle at your local branch of Cote. The cooking turned out to be pretty good, especially in the case of the excellent cheese souffle, which was a fine dish. As a bonus, the wine list is fairly priced and the corkage is modest. This little restaurant is rather under the radar and seem to do little or no marketing, but if you are in west London then it is well worth a try.  

The Ritz has now reopened and I will cover my return there in the blog next week.
